I won't bash this song however to others' points, it has been overplayed to a fault. Their older stuff leading up to and including The Unforgettable Fire was by far their best. Although there were some good tracks on Achtung. Saw them twice and they do put on a solid show. Have to give 'em that.

 
For me Achtung baby is pretty decent album. Like it a lot. Probably one of their best (just my taste) :) But won't deny that older albums are good.

Genius.  

 
Oh yes. Especially after Zooropa, or Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me song (1995). Everything after that was pure garbage or rehash of old stuff. As far as I'm concerned, relevant U2 is from 1984-1993/5.

I am a big early U2 fan, but this song is the new American Pie.  It has been so overplayed that I really can't listen to it anymore.

So I glad I saw U2 just recently on their Joshua Tree tour. Still an amazingly relevant band, and the show was fantastic.

 
Just saw them two nights ago myself. By god I was actually impressed. Saw them twice before but this one was a step above. (Beck opening didn't hurt things either. ^_^)

I've never considered myself a fan of U2, probably cuz I was only 10 when this album came out, so too young for their early years, and I was more on the Jazz/Blues/R&B/Funk/Hip-Hop/Rap, etc.

I rated this one a 9, and even though I've heard it hundreds of times, I don't think I ever enjoyed it until a few years ago.  Maybe it's wisdom as I get older?  Or having lost loved ones?  Nonetheless, I've always tried to remain open-minded about U2, and maybe I'll go out and buy one of their albums one day....this one probably....why  not?!

Long Live RP!

There you have it right there,  The reason why U2 are one of the greats - because people love their music. Simple.

Many people dislike Bono and his persona but that is beside the point.  He/they could write and perform music that appealed to a whole generation across the world. 

I have just got to bump it up from 8 > 9.

Perhaps it is your lack of compassion and humanity.
